Lady Gaga Goes Pink, Talks Hollywood, Surgery, and Art in Harper's Bazaar

Lady Gaga worked it for photographer Terry Richardson's May cover of Harper's Bazaar. She modeled a pink wig similar to the one she sported in a recent Vogue shoot, and inside the magazine Gaga stripped down to pose on a piano then dressed up for another snap. She broke from a huge Born This Way tour, which she caused some headlines during earlier this week with a fall off her piano, to open up about her life and work. Gaga shared about her intense work ethic, thoughts on plastic surgery, and her persona. She said:

  • On turning away from a Hollywood lifestyle: "I had all these number-one records, and I had sold all these albums, and it was sort of this turning point: Am I going to try and embrace Hollywood and assimilate to that culture? I put my toe in that water, and it was a Kegel-exercise vaginal reaction where I clenched and had to retract immediately. I ran furiously back to New York, to my old apartment, and I hung out with my friends, and I went to the same bars."
  • On plastic surgery: "I have never had plastic surgery, and there are many pop singers who have. I think that promoting insecurity in the form of plastic surgery is infinitely more harmful than an artistic expression related to body modification."
  • On her career plan: "You can quote me on this: People love you when they think you won't be around for very long, and people hate you when they can't get rid of you. But I'm not going anywhere."
